I also write to connect with family. There are people in my family that I don't get to see often, I write to them all the time. Whether it is on the internet or texting, we still connect. Even with friends and family I do get to see often we still write to each other all the time. Writing connects me to a lot of different things.
I write to connect to a lot of different things. One thing I write to connect to is my inner self. When I need to get my feelings out and I don't want to talk to anyone I write them on paper and then eventually start to feel better. I also write to connect to others. Like for example, thanks to English class and writing journals I connected to a lot of people in my class who I never would of that I connected to.
